Our Core Purpose
Overview & History
Through our partnership with Empowering Church Health Outreach (ECHO), we host replication workshops several times a year to help people across the country start and expand clinics based on our model. To date, there are more than 45 clinics in the country using our community-based model of care.
Recognizing that health is more than prescribing pills, we also offer fitness, nutrition, and educational programming for children, teens and adults. Our Model for Healthy Living informs every service line of our organization and illustrates how the seven key dimensions of our health overlap and contribute to our overall well-being. Our Faith Community Outreach staff offers hope for a healthier life by reaching people where they worship. Church Health provides the support, consultation and education to start or strengthen health ministries in congregations. Since 1988, more than 1,200 Congregational Health Promoters have been trained to be health leaders within their congregations.
